  • I would hire a maid for my mother to come in twice a week and clean her house so she could work out in the yard all she wanted when she got off of work. For my father I would have my old room converted into a wine cellar, and stock it!

  • The maid sounds good at this time in my mother's life. Or a chauffeur. When Dad was alive, I'd have given them a trip to Hawaii.

  • I gave them a grand child to love, thats enough. One was never around and the other......I'm not even going to go there. So I feel I gave them plenty.

  • To answer my own question: For my dad

    I would do two things. I would restore his old '78 Malibu. He had this car for 12 years and it was the most reliable thing he's ever owned. He always talks about what a terrible decision he made the day he let a friend talk him into upgrading to something newer. His newer car is now falling apart and he's retired on Social Security and can't afford to buy a new one.

    I would also buy him his dream '57 Bel Aire in bright red. That way he could have his reliable daily driver that he misses so much and the show car he was always too busy providing for us to afford.

  • I would pay off my Moms house and send her on a vacation.

  • Money for the best medical treatment for my Grandpa- he has Parkinson's.

    Buy them a big house in our hometown- they had to move an hour away b/c houses here were too expensive.

    New car for my mom- a '67 and 2010 Camaro for my dad..

    So much more, lol. =)

  • I would buy my parents a million acers in the middle of nowhere. With 4 big ole house spread out out among them, so all us kids can live around them and move the grandparents out there too. I would also give them all brand new fourwheelers and trucks.

    His parent's I'd give $20 to and tell them to have fun blowing it on Cigs or gambling or something else incredibly stupid.
